    Tim, I can appreciate the benefits of volunteering in the community because I have done my share over the years here in the Berkshires. I was a volunteer for many years at the two Berkshire Sanctuaries, part of the Massachusetts Audubon Society. Much of the time I worked with the property manager, but I also spent a lot of time out in the woods cutting bittersweet and other invasive plants that threaten to take over areas of the forest. And when I was in the Lenox Kiwanis Club, we spent many weekends walking the roadsides of Lenox picking up bottles, cans, and throwaways from McDonald’s. Nowadays I don’t see anyone doing that. More people need to be out doing stuff like that because there isn’t money around to pay the DPW, but sadly I think that folks are too busy with their own lives to care much about the environment. I’ll be 75 in August, but I’m still in good health, and I take a bag with me when my wife and I walk our neighborhood. I wish everyone would do the same, then maybe we wouldn’t have trash along our roadsides. Come to think of it, why is the trash even there to begin with?
